The following recipe came with my new N2O siphon:
- dissolve 75g of chocolate in 275g of cream
- cool to 5 degree Celsius
- strain through sieve into siphon to make sure no undissolved pieces of chocolate get into siphon
- pressurize siphon
- shake 8-10 times
When I eat the mousse au chocolat immediately after letting it out of the siphon, it doesn't quite have the texture I expect from mousse au chocolat (my reference is a traditional recipe with eggs, whipped cream and chocolate), but it's still fluffy and nice. When I let it rest in in the fridge however, which usually gives mousse au chocolat a firmer texture without being less fluffy, it kind of deflates and reverts to it's pre-siphon state of liquid chocolate-cream mix. It actually keeps it's fluffiness worse than a vegan variant I also did with 250g of coconut milk and 100g of chocolate (which has enough fat that it becomes solid in the fridge and keeps it's fluffiness).
Is that supposed to happen like that? Isn't a whipped cream siphon supposed to, you know, whip the cream?
